Almost there

I had my last Dr. appt today. I will be 38 weeks tomorrow, but feel like I'm at about 38 months. We have tried everything that has been recommended to jumpstart labor and nothing has worked. The doctor said it could be any day, but if she doesn't come on her own, I have been scheduled to be induced a week from today. My appt is on December 3rd at 7:30am, but it doesn't mean they will even get to me that day. I have never been induced before so I don't know exactly how the hospital works the appointments. I guess it depends on other people's progress and when they have a room available. I'm still hoping Baby "P" will come on her own before that, but if not, at least I only have 1 more week! She will probably come tomorrow on Thanksgiving, just to inconvenience everyone, but I don't care. As long as she comes.

About a month ago we all got our flu shots. 3 out of the 4 of us got our swine flu shot today and by Friday we will all have been vaccinated. Let's hope we don't sprout a curly tail and a snout.
I'm 35 weeks and must look like I'm ready to pop. Everywhere I went today someone made a comment. That hasn't happened even once before today. I have a doc appt tomorrow so we'll see what he says. I know she will be here sooner than we think. I give it 2 weeks.

Look how much they've grown!!!!

Our Halloween started off making these fun goodie bags and shoes for the family.
(As if everyone wasn't going to get enough candy as it is!)

On Friday night we went to our ward Trunk or Treat Party. We had to wake Landen up from his nap so he was VERY grumpy. I had a hard time putting the spray in his hair and especially doing the white makeup because he kept crying saying,"It's not really Halloween yet! Not till tomorrow!!!" If you know Landen, you know this makes perfect sense, my OCD child. But after he was all dressed up, he loved it.

Landen the SCARY GHOST!

Boston loves animals just like Landen does and he wanted to wear Landen's Giraffe costume from last year. Fine with me! He LOVED Trick or Treating! At first he had no idea why people were just GIVING him candy, but after a very short period of time he caught on and there was no holding this kid back!

Boston the GIRAFFE!

At the Trunk or Treat there was a car decorated with lots of glowing,moving,and talking Halloween decorations. There was also a little Elephant there, and these two were just mesmerized by the moving head in the trunk. We joked that this guys car just attracted WILD ANIMALS, it was SOOO cute!!

These 2 made out like bandits. Their buckets were practically full to the top, just from the Trunk or Treat!

After we were done Trick or Treating on Halloween, the boys had gotten a total of 3 big Gallon size baggies full to the top with Candy!!! They were so proud! And since these are the last few weeks I can actually eat some candy bars without feeling to guilty or having to worry about a diet, I'm going to take full advantage!
